Write Notes about Ralph Waldo Emerson’s “Self Reliance” Essay

Portfolio Assignment 6.2: Transcendental Text–Write

You will be completing a text–write. First, you will read Ralph Waldo Emerson’s essay, “Self-Reliance,” located on the left–hand side of the chart, for comprehension. Once you have done so, read the essay a second time and begin to write notes on the right–hand side of the chart. Perhaps you have questions, or you have text–to–self connections. Maybe you have questions about what you are reading—write all this down on the right side of the chart. You have plenty of room, so make your notes parallel with the text you are notating.
